    Pinned Website- Add custom tile image

    As you can see in the image below of my pinned sites on the start screen the facebook and twitter sites have created a pinned tile for the website. Other sites don't have a tile developed for them. Is there a way I can edit the pinned website to display a custom tile that I choose? Where are these pinned sites located on my surface?

    I believe it's up to the website to have a favicon loaded in their root directory. I have several websites and have created a favicon for each, I even made special ones to appear on my iPad. Mine are all small and with the rise of the RT I'm thinking I need to resize them. I think unless you own the website and can load a favicon you are out of luck and just have to use what they have available.

    Yes, the website needs to make a favicon. If they don't you can create your own in Windows 8 (Surface Pro) but not Windows RT (Surface RT) (at least not that I know of). This might help you track the icons down and change them if that is what you are getting at. Where is the list of pinned start menu and taskbar items stored in Windows 7 - Super User
